Wiz-Art Film Lab 2018

From 10 to 12th August, the traditional WIZ-ART FILM LAB will be held within the frame of 11th Lviv International Film Festival Wiz-Art, which will include a series of meetings, lectures, presentations, screenings and workshops from Ukrainian and international film professionals. The event takes place with the support of Lviv Film Commission. Participation in the laboratory is free of charge by registration.

This year, speakers will open the curtain of their own kitchen and share what remains on the other side of the screen – WHAT WE DON’T SEE:
– where to look for interesting stories for your films;
– how to convert them into a script;
– how to organize a film festival;
– what mistakes you should avoid
– how do you really have a bright movie!
